I've been flying my Vortex for a solid 30 days now. It's been a blast. I've been flying on 3S, and although I have brand new 4S batteries sitting on the bench, I just haven't felt the need for a change yet. So far, not a single crash. This thing is on rails!

[Vortex] First 30 Days (4 min 2 sec)


By the way, I personally know all the neighbors at the residences that I'm flying at - they are RC friendly and love the quads!

It's finally lake season again here in East Tennessee... so I decided to try something new - FPV from a moving boat. The results were worth the stress.

As 2014 draws to a close, I submit to you my video montage containing clips from most of my FPV flights post-April this year. Covers three states, six cities, and ten flying locations. Includes flights from five different quads and two different fixed-wing aircraft. Enjoy the compilation!

I took 5 FPV aircraft to the local park yesterday and made it a full afternoon of FPV flying. The video compilation below shows pilot footage, HD footage, and the CRASH into Boone Lake (Orange Rx lockout).

Last night, I made my first visit to the Johnson City Radio Controllers (JCRC) field, and immediately joined their club. I'm looking forward to a lot of flying and socializing with this great group of fellow pilots!

I did an FPV flight at the field with the "T-Copter", which showcases the field, and some large-scale 3D flying that was going on! Check it out!

The T-Copter has quickly become my favorite FPV flyer. Flights feel fluid, and the onboard video turns out silky smooth. Check out my preview video, with much more footage to come!

This video encompasses 20 different flights, all onboard the very stable DJI F550. All flights were done first-person-view (FPV) using video goggles. Hope you enjoy!

Good morning RC Groups! Over the weekend, I made a montage of footage from my trips to Folly Beach, SC. Pretty proud of this one!

Enjoy!

My latest project - revamping the FPV Raptor with all new gear. I made a rough schematic to get my thoughts down.

My girlfriend snapped a picture of me flying the T-Rex 700E a few days ago.

We had a major storm roll through our area last night, but just before it hit, I threw the Radian up with the GoPro and was able to capture this incredible lightning strike!

A nice, smooth ride through the mountains onboard the DJI F550.

The latest addition to the fleet: the DJI F550!

I purchased this from Anselmo here on RCG, and with his great help I was able to get everything up and running pretty quickly! It's windy today, so no real test flight yet - just a quick hover. Tomorrow is supposed to be calm, so hopefully I'll have some onboard footage up soon!

My friend Brian (profile) and I went flying on Monday evening, and I caught a great video of him flying the Stryker F-27Q. Two close calls with the trees and then a very strange malfunction make for a crazy landing! Make sure you see the end. We're still not sure if it was radio interference or maybe a servo acting up. It just started spiraling!

Enjoy!

I was skeptical, but I picked up the Mini Vapor the other day. I blame the very cold and windy weather for this impulse buy.

Happy to say that I have no buyer's remorse on this one! This thing flies great. I can almost bring it to a hover. Check out the video below for a flight inside my house.
